Tom Lehrer is Smug

bug report

Going for the Amulet of Yendor now (hint: uncurse your candelabra before going to the vibrating square, and of course, find the vibrating square before you take on Rodney. I at least remembered to do the latter.)

Found myself up against a Priest of Moloch. He summoned insects. He summoned some more insects. He summoned even more insects. This is what I found after I'd killed maybe half:

That's a lotta insects, Boss.

RIP Gronk (killed by a fucking IRON GOLEM?!)

An iron golem? An IRON GOLEM?! How wholly disgraceful is that?

But I was at the bottom of the dungeon. In the sanctum sanctorum. I killed the high priestess. And subdued all those insects. But where the fuck was the amulet? Not in any pile I could find. It was nowhere to be seen.

Meanwhile, Rodney shows up from BEYOND THE GRAVE and surrounds me with giants, dragons, and ... an iron golem.

Here's another great blast from the past: NBC's Studio 8H -- the world's largest broadcasting studio. At least, it was the largest in the 1930s.

Does "Studio 8H" sound familiar to you, though? It just might -- it's been the home of Saturday Night Live since the show's debut. (The studio had actually fallen into disuse by the mid-70s as did Rockefeller Center as a whole for television production; when Howard Shore requested a music stand, the NBC crew gave him Toscanini's old podium.)
